Tarragon is native to Siberia and is sweet and aromatic, reminiscent of fennel and anise. It is a must in classic French cuisine. Go lightly when using French tarragon in cooking as the herb can easily overpower the other flavors. Wonderful with poultry, fish like Dover Sole, vegetables including artichokes, sauces (especially béarnaise), lobster, shellfish, eggs and cheese, mushrooms, vinaigrettes, and stuffing.


Thyme is native to the Mediterranean basin. It grows wild on the hot arid hillsides of its native region. Thyme has a strong, slightly lemon flavor and aroma, and it symbolizes courage. Little wonder that during the Crusades ladies embroidered a sprig of thyme on their knight’s sleeves. Thyme goes nicely with poultry, fish, pork, lamb, beef, legumes, game, goat cheese, and vegetables.


Turmeric is native to Southeast Asia, a member of the ginger family. In medieval Europe, turmeric became known as Indian saffron, since it was widely used as an alternative to the far more expensive saffron spice. Known for its warm, bitter, slightly musky taste and golden color, turmeric is commonly used in fabric dyes and foods such as curry powders, mustards, and cheeses. Turmeric is widely used as a spice in Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. In South Africa, turmeric is traditionally used to give boiled white rice a golden color. It's also known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is often consumed to help relieve arthritic pain.

Vermont Maple Sugar

This is, quite simply, fine Vermont maple syrup tapped, dried and ground. We love the flavor and the endless possibilities we see for its use in baking. Sprinkle on French toast, pancakes, in your favorite beverage; wonderful on top of sugar cookies and ice cream. Also great for marinating, BBQ sauce, or added to baked beans. You can also mix this with ground pork to make delicious breakfast sausage.

Wasabi Powder

Wasabi is the root of a plant, the “mountain hollyhock,” that was once only grown in Japan. Wasabi is similar to horseradish, but not related. It is also known as Japanese Horseradish. When mixed with equal parts water, it can be used as a garnish for Sushi and Sashimi plates.

White Cheddar Cheese Powder

Our cheese powders are velvety smooth and rich in flavor. Cheese Powders are natural cheese, which has been dehydrated. We love this on popcorn! Also try it as a sauce base, with pasta, on potatoes, vegetables or bread crumbs.

Worcestershire Powder

A dry version of the liquid meat seasoning with a hint of smoke. Great for BBQ rubs or add to salad dressings. This blend covers the full range of the palate with salty, sour, bitter and a hint of sweetness.
